Precious Moments & Blessings

I don’t have much time to spend online today, but wanted to pop in real quick to share a few pictures from this past Sunday night, when Bud figured out how to stand up on his own while holding on to a piece of furniture.   He was so excited!

He is just as cute as can be! 
Also, I wanted to share the great news I received from the specialist/doctor’s office late yesterday afternoon! (I had gone in last Friday for a follow up and additional testing.)   The results came back in yesterday and my liver enzymes are back in the normal range!! I can hardly believe it, even though I have been feeling so very much better. It’s so nice to not be exhausted all the time and feel more like myself again. Thank you God, and thank you all so very much for your prayers! God is good!!!

    Glad you are feeling better. It is not easy at all when momma is not well! And Bud, he is seriously cute. It also makes me thankful that my little chubby girl is taking crawling and standing nice and slow. 🙂

    Can you please share what the trick is to get your boys to color? My boys have no interest whatsoever. I'd be grateful for any tips! God bless!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
